Red, Wine, and "I Do!"

(La Porte, IN) - Top-notch country music was the featured attraction at Friday night’s Red, Wine, and Brew.  But it was a marriage proposal that stole the show.


During intermission following Dillon Carmichael’s set, two local police officers came on stage with their loved ones to be recognized for their efforts. One of them dropped to his knee.  Sheriff’s Deputy Andy Morse had been dating Elizabeth Berg for about five years, and he decided that on-stage at a country music concert was the perfect time to pop the question.


It was a rather spontaneous plan, Morse said.  He went ring shopping Thursday and approached concert organizers about staging the proposal.  "I asked Carey [Garwood] and Dennis [Meyer] to help me out," he said, "and they gracefully did it. It was cool-- more than I can imagine."


No one was more surprised than Berg. "I'm completely in shock," she said right after the big moment. "I did not expect this." Neither did Berg's sister or her mother, Julie Fetters, who were both stage-side at the concert.  "I'm her mom, and I've been trying to push it for a long time," said Fetters, "No way would I ever expect this. Only Andy could do it that good."


Friday’s concert was a benefit for La Porte’s first responders. Luckily for officer Morse,  Berg's first response was "Yes!"
